Same Old Song--but in English, Not Russian

We've kinda thunk this for a while. Nice to have a confirmation.

When candidate Obama showed up, I realized that I had heard his typical stump speech every single day of my old Soviet life from big and small Communist party bosses -- the same structure, the same cadences, the same bogeymen, the same demagoguery, the same targets. The American people had no defense against this rhetoric. The result of the elections was totally predictable.

Time to change is coming up fast.

I've met a couple of people who once called the Communist world home who noticed the exact same thing. One of them bounced from mainland China to Cuba to here, and was very understandably tired of running, though not at all tired of standing and fighting.

Communists / Leftist/ Democrats / Unionist need to be defeated so they never rise again.

Show me a Pro-life union thats loyal to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church and I will consider joining. Truth be told I have never encountered a union in america that had any scruples at all. Most Unions support the murder of unborn children in the womb.......

The American people had no defense against rhetorical devices? Obama was somehow different from all other politicians who came before him? Puh-lease. What silly clap-trap.
